What is the make up of todays Labour party.

Standard

Momentum vice-chairwoman Jackie Walker has been suspended from Labour over controversial comments she made at a party training event.
Leaked footage showed the outspoken campaigner saying she had not found a definition of anti-Semitism she could work with.
The footage also showed her questioning why Holocaust Memorial Day was not more wide-ranging to include other genocides.
Labour said it did not comment on individual party memberships but it is understood Ms Walker has now been suspended.
Labour MP John Mann called Ms Walker’s comments “unacceptable in a modern political party” by any standard.
He also suggested the comments had “inspired waves of anti-Semitic and racist backlash including Holocaust denial”.
But former London mayor Ken Livingstone defended some of Ms Walker’s comments, saying “there’s a difference between ignorance and anti-Semitism”.
